"my secret" to the No Bake Cookie

I have had so many questions on my Chocolate Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies that I thought I would share my secret." Are you ready?

HEAPING tablespoons of Peanut Butter - I don't level it AND  extra OATMEAL ( about 3/4 C more than recipe calls for)

This is Grace's Nana's recipe and we've used it for years!!  I printed it out at the bottom of the post for you.

Once I melt the cocoa, milk, butter and sugar down and boil for two minutes I then pour in the vanilla, peanut butter and oats. you do have to work quickly here.  Once I stir the initial 3 cups of oats in I get a 'feel' of the mix and add about 3/4 cup more in and stir and then I immediately begin plopping down heaping tablespoons of cookies. by the time I get to the last bit it is already pretty crumbly and won't stick together very well and this is the part I eat...

I love No Bake Cookies and so does my step dad so I am taking this batch to him since the last two we all ate before they got to him!

A little bit of SHOP NEWS

We have this 2x4 CHOICE SIGN sign we just created.  We have this ONE that is ready to ship today if you catch me before 2:00 PM.  Of course you can order one from the SHOP too.  It is a creamy background with graphite lettering.  We created it as a reminder to CHOOSE good things within each day.  I am going to change out signs to say CHOICE signs or something...I don't like the word RULES...ugh!  We all know we can't keep all the rules right?smile

We sold the I AM HIS one that was ready to ship but you are welcome to order a custom one.  I want one for my bedroom!  The words strengthen my heart when I read them reminding me WHO's I am.  I don't know about you but I need some of that everyday!  I love the way Nikki laid it out so that the I AM HIS really stands out.

REMEMBER - you can customize all of our signs.  We offer Annie Sloan Chalk Paints as color options now.  Need a specific size?  we can do that too.

 enjoy you Wednesday..the weekend is almost here.  I want to take the girls to see Les Miserables. has anyone seen it yet?  good?
